Welsh Government issues anti-blacklisting guidance
In September 2013 the Welsh Government became the first devolved administration to issue guidance to all public bodies and local authorities detailing how they could bar construction companies involved in blacklisting from public sector contracts.
Prior to this a number of local authorities had already passed motions calling on companies that had been involved in blacklisting to be barred from bidding for contracts.
Also in September 2013 Tower Hamlets Council became the first council to issue a pledge not to award any contracts to any of the companies guilty of blacklisting workers.
Following the guidance issued by the Welsh Government, UCATT are urging all devolved administrations and the British Government to issue similar guidance.
